In the latest blow to Maryland’s film and TV industry, Discovery Communication’s TLC channel is moving to LA, taking about a third of its 50 employees.
This comes less than two weeks after HBO’s crime drama “The Wire” wrapped up shooting for its final season. Heck, even “Hairspray” was filmed in Canada.
Meanwhile, the state of Maryland cut its incentive money to lure film companies this year.
Have we lost our drawing power for television and filmmakers? If so, how do we get it back or should we care?
